Shameless guild recruitment post (we need a resto druid)

What can I say.  I am a GM now and I am going to use every tool in my armory.  And we are so close to that Majordomo kill – if we had a healer who could have done the whole raid tonight he would have gone down.  17%!!!

LFD: Guild vs PuG

So today we woke up to this gem: In patch 4.1 we’ll be introducing Dungeon Finder: Call to Arms, a new system intended to lower queue times. Call to Arms will automatically detect which class role is currently the least represented in the queue, and offer them additional rewards for entering the Dungeon Finder queue and completing a random level-85 Heroic dungeon. Any time the Dungeon Finder queue is longer than a few minutes for level-85 Heroics, the Call to Arms system kicks in and determines which role is the least represented. In the case of tanking being the least … Continue reading LFD: Guild vs PuG
